Glasgow Photoshoot to prepare for Paris Cycle


Early morning call.... 6am...heading to Glasgow for Photoshoot


...meeting with Donald Dewar, Scotland's First Minister!



Auld Alliance T-shirt for Matthew to wear on the Cycle trip to Paris, 
presented by Allan of Prentice Events 
who is organising the trip to raise funds for many charities including Hope4China.

                        Coffee with Mr Boyd Tunnock of Scotland's famous Tunnock's Teacakes



One of the magic moments was when Mr Tunnock, creator of The Tunnocks Teacake 
and owner of the famous Scottish family business, stood to shake hands .........

                          and pulled out a packet of Tunnock's caramel wafers from his inside pocket!!!!!!

                                                                    Made my day!!!!!!


 Miss Glasgow then arrived on her bike and joined us all for coffee, sharing stories with Matthew and Mr Tunnock.








Suitably refreshed, we all stepped out to meet with the Lord Provost of Glasgow for the publicity shots for the Cycle trip from Scotland  to Paris



 Of course our "official photographer" from China was in his element 
taking lots and lots of photos of the team
                                      Of course some shots with Mr China and Miss Glasgow




                                  Great to see the old Tunnock's van, along with the Mr Tunnock


Fantastic Day bringing out the best of Glasgow.......
and looking forward to the Cycle to Paris to raise funds for our Guangxi girls

Hi Matthew-- You are looking good on your mission. It was easy to donate to the cause. I hope more Holt families will too.

We'd like to use a photo of Boyd Tunnock. We will donate USD20.00 to Hope4China for the one-time use of the photo and also credit Hope4China's Children for the photo.
